Gay activist coalition reunites to demand GSAs in Catholic schools

TORONTO, Ontario, April 5, 2012 ( – A coalition of homosexual activist groups who backed Marc Hall’s successful bid to bring his male partner to a Catholic prom in 2002 have reunited to demand that the Ontario government force Catholic schools to allow “gay-straight alliances.”

“In the Marc Hall case, Catholic schools didn’t have the right to regulate school dances. Well, we say they don’t have the right to regulate school clubs either,” Douglas Elliott told the homosexualist newspaper Xtra. Elliott is the lawyer for a coalition of 13 groups that supported Marc Hall in 2002 and reunited at an April 2nd press conference to step up the campaign for homosexual clubs in Catholic schools.
